To whom it may concern, "Yahoo is planning on featuring your podcast this week on a Yahoo media property."
60 Minutes, a CBS News magazine, is now also a podcast.
The Toronto Star supports RSS 2.0.
Brian Cantoni sends word that Cal does have a feed for Berkeley sports. How about that. It's also a very weird hybrid of RSS 1.0 and 2.0, leaning toward 2.0. Looks like someone was on the fence.
My favorite fast food these days is Naked Protein Zone. It's a little sweet, very refreshing, and a wee bit gritty. Food you drink.
Among Gartner's key emerging technologies are podcasting, RSS and blogging. This is pretty remarkable that these three are now established to the point where corporate IT analysts are covering them.
If I were giving a talk at Web 2.0, this is what I'd say. (25 minutes, MP3.) I'd also show up at Jeff Jarvis's discussion about advertising, and would urge the panelists to consider that they might be looking at the new world through old, obsolete glasses. Much better to help the people with something to say learn how to say it directly, without hitching a ride on what someone else is saying. Five years from now people will wonder why anyone thought old advertising models would live through the media revolution of the web. We'll chuckle philosophically and remark that it is always that way. Most people don't really understand how much things have changed until long after they have changed, then they'll wonder why people didn't just skip over the ads with the fast-forward button.
Here are the notes from the talk, above.
Rick Segal: "Enough already with this Web 2.0 nonsense."
Josh Hallett is betting on Web 2.1, or Web 3.0.
Web 2.1: A brain jam for the rest of us.
Scoble's wife Maryam, is blogging.
Scoble: "I've created a monster."
NPR: "President Bush chooses White House Counsel Harriet Miers to succeed Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court. The 60-year-old nominee is a former Dallas lawyer."
NY Times: "Ms Miers, 60, a longtime confidant of the president's, has never been a judge, and therefore lacks a long history of judicial rulings that could reveal ideological tendencies. Her positions on such ideologically charged issues as abortion and affirmative action are not clear."
When I read this piece, I heard: "Scoble wants a relational database."
After figuring out how to find my misplaced phone yesterday; today the damned thing won't boot up. I thought it the battery, but I charged it overnight, still won't boot. Serves me right for being so pleased with myself yesterday.
